Local hospitals recruiting to brand new data quality team

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals is excited to announce the formation of a new Data Quality Assurance team and are now recruiting talented individuals to join this important initiative.


As a large acute hospital trust, DBTH handles a vast amount of data every day, ranging from patient records to operational statistics. It is critical that this data is of the highest quality, in order to ensure that patients receive the best possible care in the right place and to enable the Trust to make informed decisions about its services.

The new Data Quality Assurance team will play a key role in achieving these goals and will be responsible for the validation of all patient pathways. The main duties of these roles will centre around updating data within Trust systems and referring patients onward for further support.

DBTH is making a significant investment in this new team and there are 17 new posts to be filled by talented individuals with a keen eye for detail, passion for data and excellent communication skills.

Successful candidates will be joining the team at an exciting time and will take a lead role in ensuring that the Trust has high-quality data to support the delivery of the highest quality of care to patients and for performance reporting.

Ken Anderson, Chief Information Officer at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and forward thinking organisation and to make a real difference to the lives of patients in Doncaster and Bassetlaw. This new team also offers a chance to be part of shaping the future of validation at DBTH in preparation for the introduction of a new Electronic Patient Record.”

If you are passionate about data quality and patient services and are looking for a new challenge, you can apply for the role here.

Closing date for applications is 12 April 2023 and an information and assessment day will be held on 19 April in Doncaster.
